#TBLTchat on Twitter | TELT | Scoop.it
Hello world! This is the post about the first Task-Based Language Teaching and Learning Chat. I wonder what people fancy talking about. Leave a comment to suggest a topic.Keep it TBLT-related and hopefully we'll have a lively discussion.
Shona Whyte's insight:
Marc Jones, EFL teacher in Tokyo (?) has set up a Twitter account and hashtag for discussion of task-based language teaching. Some links here: http://www.scoop.it/t/telt/?q=tblt

Time, work, science, Twitter: AILA talk by Greg Myers

Time, work, science, Twitter: AILA talk by Greg Myers | TELT | Scoop.it

Here are the references for the talk I am doing today at AILA in Brisbane: "Time and work on science Twitter."  Greg Myers

Shona Whyte's insight:

I'm having a little trouble parsing Myers' title, but some of the references to work on social media for science look worth chasing up.

#ELT chat: how to participate

#ELT chat: how to participate | TELT | Scoop.it

What is #ELTChat?
#ELTchat started in September 2010 when a group of #ELTchat professionals began to use twitter to discuss topics of interest to English Language Teachers. It began with the aim of creating a freely available social network for ELT professionals offering mutual support and opportunities for Continuous Professional Development.


Now, every Wednesday at 12pm and 21.00pm, ELT teachers from all over the world log into their Twitter account and for one hour hold an online discussion on a topic they have selected.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Good place to start to develop your own personal learning network for English language teaching.

#worldcall2013 Twitter feed

Shona Whyte's insight:

This seems like a nice idea.  I'm linking to it for next year's pre-service Italian teachers ; j'espère que les étudiants en master TICE pourront s'en servir directement ou pour construire leur réseau.

How to do Chirpstory: Jo Brodie

How to do Chirpstory: Jo Brodie | TELT | Scoop.it

 I use Chirpstory to collect hundreds of tweets relatively quickly. [I]t lets you collect tweets in pages rather than individually. Here's how I do it.

Shona Whyte's insight:

I just started using this in the usual way and for the usual reasons - spotted someone using it (#eltchat), then saw how it would be helpful for something I'm already doing (PLNs for pre-service teachers).  Luckily someone has posted this nice walk-through.
